Vision correction: This is most commonly recommended in younger people with more extreme degrees of visual need beyond what lasik can easily accomplish. It involves the removal of the natural lens and replacement with an artificial lens of the correct power. This can be of great benefit to those with extreme eyeglass needs but it does carry some risk.
